About the Artist

The works by Jerry Silverberg are primarily, but not exclusively, collagraphs and linocuts created in Cuba at Taller Cultural and printed in Canada on Japanese paper. They continue his tradition of storytelling through his evocative images. Jerry Silverberg is a multi disciplinary artist working in both theatre and visual art. As an artist and illustrator, but primarily a printmaker, he has been producing print work since 1975, focusing and experimenting with the process of monotypes (the painterly print). He has shown in many cafes and galleries throughout the city. His illustrative work (using monotype, drypoint and stencil techniques) has appeared in The Globe and Mail, This Magazine, The Walrus, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. He has also created several book illustrations and posters for dance and theatre productions.

His interest in dance and theatre has led him to work with some of Canada’s foremost choreographers. By invitation he has drawn at several dance rehearsal spaces including the National Ballet of Canada. Some of these drawings, based on dance works by Claudia Moore, Peggy Baker and the dancers of the National Ballet have been translated to prints. Some of these works are held in private collections and National Archives in Canada.
A “jack-of-all-arts” and “not too bad at some”, since 1983 Silverberg has been artistic director of Cascade Theatre, an award-winning touring theatre company for young and family audiences. He has produced over 15 plays that have been performed to over 900,000 parents, teachers and children throughout Canada.
